An exceptional Saint-Cloud soft-paste covered box

Saint-Cloud, circa 1715-1725

Provenance:
Jean Bloch Collection,
Its sale Palais Galliera, Paris, 1961 December 2nd, lot 172.

Comparative literature:
Bertrand Rondot (et al). Discovering the Secrets of Soft-Paste Porcelain at Saint-Cloud Manufactory, ca. 1690-1766. New York 1999, p.149, n° 50.

This covered box, called “drageoir” is considered as the most important and beautiful one which is still remaining in private hands. Another one, coming from the same collection but more simple (no gadrooned terrace and rim and less elaborate finial) is preserved in the Musée des Arts décoratifs, Paris.
